Capo on fret 4

[C]    [F]    [C]    [G]    
[C]The warden said he'd mail my letter[F]    
[C]The chaplain's waitin' by the door [G]    
[C]Tonight we'll cross the yard to[F]gether
[C]Then they can't hurt me anymore [G]    

'Cause [C]I am [G]going over [Am]yonder[Em]    
[F]Where no [C]ghost can follow [G]me  
[C]There's another place bey[F]ond here
Where [C]I'll be free[G] I believe, you can...

[C]Give my radio to Jo[F]hnson
[C]Thibodeaux can have my [G]fan  
[C]Send my Bible home to [F]Mama
[C]Call her every now and then [G]    

'Cause [C]I am [G]going over [Am]yonder[Em]    
[F]Where no [C]ghost can follow [G]me  
[C]There's another place bey[F]ond here
Where [C]I'll be free[G] I believe

[C]    [G]    [Am]    [Em]    [F]    [C]    [G]    
[C]I suppose I got it [F]comin'
[C]I can't ever pay enough [G]    
[C]All my rippin' and a [F]runnin'
[C]I hurt everyone I loved [G]    

[C]The world'll turn around with[F]out me
[C]The sun'll come up in the [G]east
[C]Shinin' down on all of them that [F]hate me
[C]I hope my goin' brings 'em [G]peace

Well [C]I am [G]going over [Am]yonder[Em]    
[F]Where no [C]ghost can follow [G]me  
[C]There's another place bey[F]ond here
Where [C]I'll be free[G] that's what I believe

[C]    [G]    [Am]    [Em]    [F]    [G]    [C]    



The warden said he'd mail my letter
The chaplain's waitin' by the door
Tonight we'll cross the yard together
Then they can't hurt me anymore

'Cause I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There's another place beyond here
Where I'll be free I believe, you can...

Give my radio to Johnson
Thibodeaux can have my fan
Send my Bible home to Mama
Call her every now and then

'Cause I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There's another place beyond here
Where I'll be free I believe


I suppose I got it comin'
I can't ever pay enough
All my rippin' and a runnin'
I hurt everyone I loved

The world'll turn around without me
The sun'll come up in the east
Shinin' down on all of them that hate me
I hope my goin' brings 'em peace

Well I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There's another place beyond here
Where I'll be free that's what I believe
